Tracey contacted me in June of 2011 to plan her wedding in November. She travels between Senegal & the US & often throughout Europe for work and therefore our detailed communication was extremely important. I realised immediately that she was an extremely special human being, than this was confirmed when I met her for the first time at her chosen venue – the beautiful Cellars Hohenort Hotel in Constantia.
Our planning process was most enjoyable, and I just couldn’t wait for their wedding day to arrive! And what a beautiful day it was …. it is hard to beat the beautiful setting of this hotels garden … and it was captured perfectly by the extremely talented Greg Lumley. The food at the Greenhouse at Cellars is a culinary experience not to be missed …. and every guest was completely in awe of the sensational dinner they were served. This will be a wedding that I shall never forget, and I will most definitely stay in touch with this wonderful couple!
Tracey shares some of her thoughts of her wedding with us:
“Selecting a wedding coordinator from miles away and via internet can be an unsettling and daunting task – to say the least. From the very beginning of our destination wedding process, you managed to put us both at ease with your professionalism, your attention to detail, and your promptness – and this was without us having met! I was most grateful for your honoring the intimate and loving atmosphere we wanted to create as a result of your suggesting venues, an officiant, and vendors who were capable of providing services to our specifications. When I flew to Cape Town to meet you, to visit our venue of choice, and to speak with vendors, I knew that Makura and I had found the person who would assist us in capturing the essence of our relationship, our love, and the type of people we are. On a personal note, I still remember your kind words on my wedding day when I was bundle of nerves. Those were the words, not only of a wedding coordinator, but of a generous human being who understands that love and marriage are still indeed sacred.”
